Book of the Week! That Book Woman

This is another of my favorite children's books that we stumbled upon in our library a while back.  It's a story about a family in the Appalachian Mountains and the Pack Horse Librarian that dutifully comes to bring them books. 
This is such a great story.  Not only does it talk about how wonderful books are and how much we can learn from them, but it also includes details about a little known part of American history that included the Pack Horse Librarians.  When I read this to my girls, I got all teary and how devoted this woman was and what a difference she made in the lives of that family.  Yes, I'm that sappy.  But it's a good book, so read it anyway!
